The Department of Visual and Performing Arts will open its performance season with the hit Broadway Musical Revue Smokey Joe’s Cafe

Smokey Joe’s Café is the hottest musical in town! This Tony Award-nominated and Grammy Award-winning tribute to legendary songwriters Leiber and Stoller is a dazzling, song-and-dance celebration of over 40 of rock ‘n’ roll's greatest hits including "Hound Dog," “Stand by Me,” “Yakety Yak,” “Jailhouse Rock,” “Spanish Harlem,” "On Broadway," "Kansas City," "Love Potion #9," "Fools Fall in Love” and more. The New York Times claims, “Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller are the Rodgers and Hammerstein of rock ‘n’ roll!” The New York Daily News calls Smokey Joe’s Café “wildly infectious” and Time Magazine says, “it sails and soars!”

Smokey Joe’s Café is the perfect vehicle to showcase the talents of the students in the The College of Arts and Sciences’ Department of Visual and Performing Arts. The four areas of study - dance, music, theatre and visual arts will collaborate to bring the music of Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller to life. The performers will explode on to the stage taking audiences on an exciting journey through the 1950s and 60’s, conjuring memories of milestone moments from prom to leaving home and first love. The nostalgic songs become a character all their own with a history that anyone from any generation is guaranteed to enjoy.

Don’t miss this spirited and soul stirring musical revue!
